Location: Anchorage (private residence – address to be provided on registration)

Description: Join us for Unblocked Creativity: a relaxing, restorative day-long retreat designed specifically for Alaska’s creative writers. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the world and spend the day reconnecting with your creative spirit, clearing creative blocks, and setting fresh intentions for your creative journey in 2024. Experience the healing power of communal writing exercises, breathwork in nature, gentle somatic movement, and guided meditation to recover your creative flow.

Who is this for?
This retreat is open to writers of all ages, genres, and skill levels.

What should I wear?

What about meals?
A hearty hot lunch will be provided, in addition to light snacks and beverages available throughout the day. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies when you register for this retreat.

Do I have to be a writer?
No! While our discussions will be primarily geared toward writing, our activities will benefit creatives of all stripes.

Should I bring anything else?
Yes! Please bring your preferred writing tools (notebook, pen, and/or laptop) and a book if you’re feeling inspired to read between group activities and freewriting time.
